Bickerton Masters is excited to announce that we’re growing our team and capability by merging with Hede Architects in Melbourne, Victoria.

Hede Architects are industry leaders in education architecture with particular expertise in designing for special needs and disability. The practice has developed a reputation for producing buildings focused on the needs of users and has received awards and citations for these.
